ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Orlando Magic picked up their $2.8
million option on former Duke star J.J. Redick for next season.

Redick has struggled to work his way into the backcourt rotation
and last season asked for a trade. He was the first guard off the
bench in the Magic's loss to Atlanta in the preseason opener
Monday, scoring 12 points, and drew praise from coach Stan Van
Gundy for his play in practices.

Redick, the team's first-round pick in 2006, originally signed a
two-year deal with two one-year options. He's making $2.1 million
this season. Calls to Redick's agent, Arn Tellem, were not immediately
returned.
